Almost a year ago I received some journaling stamps from Simple Stories. These papers sat … and they sat … and they sat some more. This week I decided enough is enough! Use these! Since I am a cardmaker at heart, that’s what I did. And I found these journaling cards made quick, pretty backgrounds.
I trimmed some the papers to fit the front of my A2 card, then I looked around for images to adorn them. I looked first in my stash of pre-stamped images. Here are two using the Stampin’ Up! layered cupcake set:
(Gave it some bling with yellow Stickles.)
And another using Tim Holtz’s Crazy Bird set (watercolored and hit with some Wink of Stella clear sparkle.)
And one more, using two of the same journaling cards, just using the opposite sides:
These are so easy I’m going to make a few sets to give away as holiday gifts.
Thanks for stopping by!
